|Leader Name:||Viktrovich Nikanor|
|History:||Modern era (1970s–)|
In 1970, Yuktobania established relations with Estovakia, becoming one of its main suppliers of weapons alongside Belka.
Cold War (1980s–1995)
Over the course of the mid-20th century, Yuktobania flourished and began to expand its political influence around the globe. However, tensions with the Osean Federation—Yuktobania's rival superpower across the Ceres Ocean—resulted in a prolonged cold war between the two nations. The possibility of unrestrained nuclear war drove Yuktobania into an ongoing arms race with Osea. During the 1980s, the Yuktobanian military made several advancements in long-range ballistic missile technology. When the Osean government announced the creation of atmospheric weapons systems to intercept these warheads, Yuktobania began exploring new launch-platforms for its nuclear arsenal. In September 1991, the incumbent prime minister, Samanov, publicly unveiled the Scinfaxi-class submersible carrier, which in turn compelled Osea to begin development of the Arkbird maneuverable spacecraft.
Belkan War (1995)
In late March 1995, Belka declared war on its neighboring countries and invaded northeastern Osea. For reasons that remain unknown, Yuktobania joined the Oseans' military coalition and supported its fight against the Belkans. Over the course of the war, Yuktobanian fighter squadrons served alongside Osean and mercenary pilots against the powerful Belkan Air Force. Yuktobania is also known to have provided intelligence-gathering resources to the Allies, and even dispatched several of its reconnaissance officers to serve in the East. In the aftermath of the war, a number of Yuktobanian pilots defected to the militant extremist organization known as "A World With No Boundaries".
Era of peace (1996–2010)
In 1996, Yuktobania signed a bilateral agreement with Osea that officially ended the Cold War. Following the peace pact, Yuktobania and Osea began to focus money and resources towards collaborative projects, such as the reborn Arkbird project and the humanitarian relief efforts following the Ulysses Impact Event in 1999. Yuktobania was relatively unharmed by Ulysses, and it likely admitted a number of foreign refugees in the aftermath.
Collaborations with Osea (2000s)
In 2008, Yuktobanian ambassadors attended the annual G7 Summit, which was hosted aboard the Arkbird; the meeting resulted in a number of historic disarmament initiatives, such as the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty and Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. Scientists and specialists from Yuktobania and Osea later collaborated to address the Ulysses fragments that still lingered in orbit; it was eventually decided that the Arkbird would be employed to eliminate the debris. The Arkbird ultimately cleared a majority of Ulysses's debris, allowing Yuktobania, together with Osea, to spearhead the creation of an international space station in the 2000s. As the first step toward realizing this, the two superpowers constructed Basset Space Center.

|Description:||The Yuktobanian Republic originally favoured more limited economic systems such as the feudalism in the past, but in a coup lead by Vladir Yuke Lenina, the leader of the yukechevenists, (an far left-wing party) rose to power and then threw the country into a communist monarchist dictatorship.|
After the 1958 Republican-led coup d'état, however, Yuktobania abruptly shaped it's economy to more of a free market form but moderate, thereby attempting to meet the demands of the economy and social needs at the same time.
Yuktobania is currently engaged in the growth of its economy and in partnership with Osea and Belka (after a peace treaty signed in the capital city of Lumen weeks before the end of Circum Pacific War).
